Disembarking on a small boat (RIB) on a solitary coast is the essence of expedition traveling. There are no ports, no houses, and probably no vehicles. Only raw nature, infinite landscapes, and untamed wildlife. No filters of any kind. The real pleasure is exploring the environment with the open mind of a pioneer and discovering the world as it used to be.

From Loch Scavaig, discover the wild and beautiful shores at the south of the Isle of Skye. Embark our small boats (RIBs) and cruise the waters of the Loch, watching the surrounding hills and mountains of the Cullians rise to meet you. Be sure to bring your binoculars to spot seabirds and seals in the water and along the shoreline. Make a nature landing on this seldom-visited coast and make your way inland to visit Loch Coruisk, one of the island’s best-kept and most spectacular secrets. Hike to the shores of the lake and admire the picturesque scenery that inspired Turner to immortalize this remote Loch on canvas.

At Hurtigruten, we have the best team of guides and naturalists, the highest safety measures, and the strictest environmental protocols to protect the land—all while ensuring an unforgettable experience.
